Hailey Bieber made a strong case for pairing a suit with sneakers yesterday, strolling through Los Angeles in an outfit from Jacquemus’ Spring/Summer 2020 collection and styling it with a pair of “MCA” Off-White™ x Nike Air Force 1s.
The outfit, loose-fitting and florally patterned, highlights how suiting is becoming ever-more liberated from its conservative associations and finding a new place in the fashion world of today. Styled with a plain white T-shirt and black sunglasses, Bieber shows that suits don’t have to be uncomfortable and can be assimilated into your everyday wardrobe with ease.
The La Veste D’Homme suit was chosen by stylist Maeve Reilly and is notable for its oversized shape, menswear-like proportions, and summery blue patterning — which of course matches the sneaker’s colorway. You can expect to see more of the suit’s color as the year drips on, with “AI aqua blue” predicted to be the next big color trend, following the frozen yellow and neo-mint of recent times.
Virgil Abloh’s highly coveted Air Force 1 “MCA” was first seen in May, when the Off-White™ and Louis Vuitton designer gifted a pair to Serena Williams, customizing them with the words “FOR SERENA ONLY” written in the designer’s signature quotations marks. The sneaker was eventually released last month.
